Last change on this file since f9c43ae was f9c43ae, checked in by James M. Kretchmar <>, 22 years ago
Fixed up the normal scrolling code. Now it should always land on a message, but it's still not optimal. Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos instances out for the 'reply' command. Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 26.0 KB
3        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
4             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
5        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
6        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
7        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
8        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
9        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
10          calculations
11        You can now use %me% in filters
12        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
13        Fixed a bug in moving the poiner after an expunge
14        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
15          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
16        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
17          instances out for the 'reply' command.
18        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
21        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
22        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
23        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
24             lock up.
25        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
26             match on this direction
27        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
28             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
29             'out'.
30        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
31        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
32             messages
33        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
34             long_zuser
35        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
36        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
37        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
40        Added the 'search' command.
41        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
42        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
43        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
44        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
45             and put it in functions.c
46        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
47             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
48             been in, the new current message position will attempt
49             to be close to the current position from the last
50             time we visited that view.
51        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
52        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
53        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
54        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
55        The new behavior of last is:
56              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
57              If we are already at the last message in the view,
58              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
59              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
60              of the screen.
61        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
62        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
65        New framework for command handling.
66        New framework for keymap handling.
67        Added commands for everything that is bound
68             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
69        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
70             to be specified on a line.             
71        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
72        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
73        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
74        Added additional options to delete command.
75        The reply command now takes arguments.
76        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
77        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
78        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
79        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
80        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
81        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
82        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
83             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
84             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
85             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
86        Bug in page down fixed
87        C-t will transpose characters
88        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
89             the screen down, leaving the current message off
90             the bottom of the screen.
91        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
92        Fixed M-u description
93        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
94        Added M-N to basic key help
95        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
96        Fixed a quoting problem in
97        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
98        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
99        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
100        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
101        Some buffer overruns fixed
102        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
103                Only the summary is shown with help.
104                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
105        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
106             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
107             identically to previous versions of owl.
108             The following modes are supported:
109             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
110                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
111                           keep the current message roughly near
112                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
113             top         - The current message will always be the
114                           the top message displayed.
115             neartop     - The current message will be one down
116                           from the top message displayed,
117                           where possible.
118             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
119                           message near the center of the screen.
120             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
121                           when user moves the cursor to the top
122                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
123                           the screen will be paged up or down and
124                           the cursor will be near the top or
125                           the bottom.
126             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
127                           when user moves the cursor to the top
128                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
129                           the screen will be paged up or down and
130                           the cursor will be near the center.
131        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
132                The caller must free this string.
133                This will allocate enough memory and thus
134                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
135        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
136                message as having been sent.)
137        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
138                now includes the name of the recipient.
139        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
140                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
141                end of the message.  This is now the default.
142                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
143        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
144        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
145                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
146        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
147        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
148                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
149                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
150                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
151                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
152        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
153                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
154                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
155        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
156                avoid buffer overrun risks.
157        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
158                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
159        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
160                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
161                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
162        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
163        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
164                 replaced with the user's home directory.
165        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
166                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
167                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
168                 sane on admin messages.
169        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
170        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
171        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
172                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
173                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
174                 of the message being replied to.
175        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
176                 M-r --- edit reply to all
177                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
178        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
179        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
180        Added --no-move option to delete command.
181                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
182                be implemented with
183                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
184        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
185                one command which takes arguments.
186                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
187                '--skip-deleted' option, and
188                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
189                Help updated accordingly. 
190                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
191                for 'next personal'. 
192                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
193                to the next and prev commands.
194        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
195        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
196                narrowing, to make it more general.
197        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
198                based on the current message and returns the name
199                of the filter.
200        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
201                matching current" and "move to previous message
202                matching current"
203        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
204                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
205                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
206                depending on the current size of the window.
207                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
208                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
209        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
210                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
211                the proposed zpunt.
212        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
213        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
214        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
215                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
216                value of strings returned by owl commands.
217        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
218                view's filter. 
219        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
220        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
221                narrow and restore the view. 
222        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
223                color messages matching the current one green.
224        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
225        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
226        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
227                contexts, and keybindings.
228        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
229                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
230                of the output now.
231        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
232                and new show commands.
233        Show with arguments produces help on show.
234        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
235                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
236        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
237             returns the string and it will get printed if it
238             was run interactively.
241        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
242        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
243        'show terminal' / 'show term'
244        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

252        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
253        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
254        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
255        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
256        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
259        Fixed memory mishandling bug
260        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
261        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
262             MESSAGE messages
263        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
264            to class and instance
265        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
266        fixed typo in help
267        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

360              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
361              a string not ending in a newline
362        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to

377        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
378              and added regression testing framework to tester
379        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
380        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
381              and the owl_dict type.
382              These include regression tests.
383        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
384              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
385              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
386              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
387              and for setting it to and from string values.
388              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
389              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
390              are generated from variable.c by
391              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
392              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
393        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
394              by variable overhaul.
395        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
396        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
397              print "Undefined variable" in addition
398              to running owl_function_printallvars.
399        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
400        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
401        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
402        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
403               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
404               string with args).
405        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
406        Removed lots of build warnings.

414        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
415              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
416              to put information about pings and logins into
417              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
418              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
419              for experimenting with what works well.)
420        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
421        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
